Yogeshwari Mata is Kulaswamini of many families in Maharashtra especially of Konkanastha Chitpavan Brahmins and Karhade Brahmins.
Yogeshwari Mata is considered to be matruka shakti of Lord Shiva. Her name is derived from the words Yoga and Ishwari. This means that she is the controller of Shakti Yoga.
There is a famous temple near the Talbi Road in Bhinmal, Rajasthan with fascinating idols of Yogeshwari and Varunachi Devi. There are also three famous temples of Yogeshwari Devi in Maharashtra. One is in Ambajogai, another in Lanja near Ratnagiri in the form of Kalabhairava’s consort and the third in Pune in the name of Tambadi Jogeshwari.
This temple is quite spacious, well built with a mandap. There are two entrance doors. The temple is a stone structure with stone idols of various gods on top. There are shops at the main entrance to buy flowers and other items. A few decades ago, no suitable accommodation was available to stay. But now the temple has a Yatri Niwas, one outside the main gate and another built inside the same temple. Another Bhakti Niwas has also been built outside the back door.
